future of economics - exponential metrics :is system compounding goodwill future? celebrating livelihoods & sustainable human purpose -is there a greater job creating network than the free university movement?
Entrepreneurial Revolution 1970 Exercise in exponentials- imagine what humanity can do if computers deliver billion times more analysis capacity>Community & sustainability's Rising Exponentials - as Keynsians first mapped in 1970s, the greatest differences between the scarcity economics of consuming up lifeless things and future economies of millennials compound round how hi-trust networks can mobilise life-critical knowhow which multiplies value in use - joyful economic abundancy way above zero sum models IF risk analysis is transformed.
Valuation expertise in exponential mapping analysis opens up around hi-trust dynamics of goodwill; . transparency. trillion dollar purpose of global market grounded in social value; joy of serving future, inter-generational goals of human race; celebrate 30000 microfranchises
=======in arithmetic: add is the operand of separability whereas multiply models connectivity ===
just as positive multipliers can explain a rising exponential note how separability is no longer a safe professional assumption -case Andersen zero value multiplier. The 20th C MBA was not educated to accunt for chain reactions that can zeroise billion dolar valuations overnight -nb how we have seen banks and dotcoms where futures (trades with each other) were highly interdependent- one goes bad all go down)- all of these need different professional respect in future of economics of value exchanges around productive and demanding human relationship lack of transparency, externalising risk, extracting more than is put back (eg carbon footprint) , short-term rewards which milks quality (when a leader loses its quality edge it will always take more cost to regain this than the short-term profits; but worse if quailtyl collapses through tipping point it may never get leadership back at any cost)
...Additional issues that 20th c economics never modelled and which blindness to is most likely to impact collapse - assumption that trade as zero-sum game (which open sourcing knowledge isnt!), not investing in human skills or failing to communally value such social goods as parenting. failing to sustain trust-emotional intelligence day in day out until a catastrophic event (human error) occurs

african value chains

What bangladesh started as new development economics paradigm (clinton) in its first and pre-mobile/digital's last quarter century 1971-1996, kenya has blended into the most exciting partnership labs for  pro-women banking and pro-youth economics and tech wizards direct world wide trade

Jamii Bora -first digitally records in microredit - end slums and family poverty staffed by youth
Ushahidi and Ihub - map where to socaily network ggod- the world number 1 open world trade hub led by youth technolgists
Mpesa and Safari and cashless banking
Joyful women table banking
5 billion person elearning partnerships

rwanda the epicentre of partners in health community health training needed at basic community levels before any other sort of economic growth strategy is viable (the main indirect lesson of ebola in west africa- Jim Kim December 2014)

ethiopia_roses,coffee, green tea - the open produce market ;paradigm for whole of africa

s.africa job creating educational curricula so that 7th graders can transbform apprenticeships and co-create additional millions jobs for poorest black youth by 2020

botswana has taken over de beer diamonds- but before value of diamonds can be fully african owned it needs to develop a training college so the cutting and jelwery design can be done out of botswana

valuationprinciples system 1from 40 year search
  • one market locally or nationally
  • one worldwide market
  • Every market at the same time in such a way that the net generation can be the most fully employed and community sustaining our wholeplanet has ever hosted.
  • In our next Book on World Record Job Creators: One reason why I recommend every student to look at the life's work of Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus is that he has proved that poverty is mainly caused by value chains that have been designed -consciously or subconsciously -to exclude livelihoods. In 1974, when he first took his students to study how to end million people famines, he found that Bangladesh's poorest mothers were excluded in every way from making a living. His solution was to invest in each circle of 60 poorest village mothers forming their own market exchange for such vital services as nutrition (carrots, chickens, rice husking), sanitation: pit latrines, ... he offered action learning and small loans to get started but most of all the group empowered by a barefoot banker designed an exchange so that there was neither glut nor scarcity for each of the services that hard working village mothers were able to co-produce

    MY BIGGEST QUESTION OF 2015- what's yours?
    why do old men spend half a trillion dollars of customers money a year on concepts for propositioning unsustainable products, and young women have next to zero budget or media for exploring concepts we'd like to spend our lives co-producing

    World Bank Q of 2015: Where do citizens (and half of world under 29) have a sustainable role in the future?

    You can find this debate at the world bank mooc on citizen engagement -  the bank appears to say that you need to register (free and about 2 minute process) before mid april - but can then be a full course alumni among 100000 peers and networker for a year

    You can engage personally in this debate with me chris.macrae@yaoo.co.uk washington dc at any time -cheers!
    1) Over the last 3 years the world bank has clarified what role will make young professionals (and so humanity's next 15 years of #2030now) exponentially sustainable celebrating the joy of the Preferential Option Poor model that young health professional have tested in pioneering global social value of alt over 30 years and which end-poverty cultural segments of eg the catholic church (starting in south americas of late 1960s) but which Pope Francis will lead yo congress on 24 september. 

    So this is all transparent, exciting, a whole truth pathway back to sustainability.Moreover  this model has proven extremely timely -it was essential -and servant leadership heroically critical - for the last mile professional capacity (love, courage and trust networking) needed to combat ebola

    2) Less clearly actionable but worthy is public servant (open society and whole truth leadership research) such as that by Ibrahim foundation for africa, and sometimes implied by transparency international though as little as I am informed without a practice case like young professionals can see for health

    3) My point is that the role you can inspire citizens to engage  depends on other 2 groups who start with much more power, resources, decision-making (or knowledge) the way old (and non-sustainable) national systems spun the pre-digital, pre-mobile highly bordered 20th century whose industrial mindset came to value owning things and power over carbon energy more than freeing people livelihoods (see www.futureofeconomics.com if in doubt)

    Over the last 25 years starting with big 5 consultant firms in london I have examined the maths of all sorts of stakeholder models of global social value mentored until 2010 by my father a Keysnian economists who first journalised the struggles the net generation would have to be sustainable in The Economist of the 1970s. None are valid unless as a minimum they explain triad interactions. The reason being when you develop a theory for one- unless its the one that is already most powerful it as no chance of transformation on its own . When you look at two at a time, the issue is that one will always dominate the other over time. You need a third balancing dynamic (that's if you are asking all to transform  back to a sustainable orbit) so that each can mediate the other two

    I dont see how this course relates to the rest of what the world bank has opened up since JIm Kim took office. I look forward to hearing from one world bank staffer who can inform me/us. Meanwhile if you are interested in this or other triad models in which citizens have an equal valuation role please say.

     Equally if you are just a humble mathematician - you are my home clan - love to hear from you any time. Its a strange computational world- one billion times more analytical capacity than when man raced to the moon but drowning in analyses tat neither of my family's greatest open system heroes Einstein nor Von Neumann would bother grading.

    Around The World of Global Social Value of Health and Preferential Option Poor

    Open letter to friends of catholic university millennials

    I wanted to update you on what I can see and would like to help do

    Co-creating some kind of town wide student and leadership "real space" for exploring  (Preferential Option Poor) cultural connections of faith and net generation world's most valued professions in ending poverty remains by number 1 deadline before and after september 23 and 24 (Pope Francis visits to Obama and Congress). As well as real space Naila particularly has made progress with the yazmi satellite with its potential pan-africa and pan-asia reach. Further if student union clubs of Preferential Option Poor replaced microcredit clubs as Ultra Poorest and womens empowerment main channel into student life across USA that would be no bad thing for millennials sustainability goals because Big Banks can hardly take over POP.

    Research of what ways to help paul farmer and jim kim (whose 30+ years of world class health service for poorest started in haiti and peru continues). The head of Haiti's new teaching hospital (rebuilt round farmer partners after the earthquake demolished the old one ) is speaking in DC 
    Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 6 to 8 pm at Busboys and Poets.

    This gathering is an opportunity to learn more about the work you make possible, ask questions, and engage with other supporters of PIH. 

    The reception will begin at 6 p.m., and drinks and appetizers will be served. Dr. Michelle Morse, PIH's deputy chief medical officer for Haiti, will give an update on PIH's ongoing efforts to strengthen Haiti's health system and share other stories from her work in Haiti.

    Busboys and Poets-14th and V, is located at 2021 14th Street NW, Washington, DC. 

    I dont know if that would be an opportunity to involve someone from the nursing faculty who you mentioned as one of the practice groups at CUA most likely to be interested in POP. Also Naila stages her annual 3000 person free healthcheck day in May so could be another reason for connecting before then. Further Tokyo University (and Toyota's development foundation) have asked Naila to keep an eye on their cohort of medical students who visit the East Coast on exchange in second half of the years- something that fits with trying to develop best for women empowerment relationships with health institutes across east coast. Naila is just back from 2 week of UN events which went very well and go to the next stage of activity at the same time as Pope Francis visit

    I am hoping that Taddy Blecher's summer visit to USA will spare some days in DC. He's the epicentre of the Mandela Extranet empowering million poorest 7th graders and their teachers to be job creators- it would really help me to understand a best reference criss-crossing eg Preferential Option Poor, Mandela, Gandhi. Maharishi -it seems to be to do with finding oneself in hope , optimism, love of community even in the most testing of work experiences or upbringings if I understand this paul farmer video correctly Dr. Paul Farmer on Hope. And of course if a whole organisation networks in this spirit its potential to serve can be gamechanging through every community it linkin

    By september Jim Kim will be 3 years in to his 5 year term at World Bank so POP really needs to get on an exponential curve if this town is ever going to be dominated by other than globalisation's least unsustainable top-down lobbies, and non-hopeful parties

    Rachel Ruto has become the first leader to test how her livelihood and entrepreneurial training of a  million of kenya's poorest women can be accelerated by the african-asian elearning satellite Yazmi led out of Silver Spring by Ethiopian Noah Samara. Last night it was announced that Obama's annual entrepreneur summit will land in Kenya in July. So all of this is positive. When I met Ruto she started off urgent searches on water- an area I was last actively researching when The Catholic Church in the Americas celebrated a Year of Water as a human right with Brazil a particular focal point. Our friend Michael Palin produced his BBC series on Brazil ahead of time with the hope that the Olympics will yet be an environmental celebration too - something Rome 2024 Olympics committee wants to put next 9 years into culturally celebrating with youth

    Unfortunately there have been delays in getting connected across the Americas -so while the youth entrepreneur summit meeting heads of state takes place next week in panama I can't find anything to directly contribute to that this time round. 

    If there is anything I could be doing or connecting, please say

    For our kind of citizen its March Energy Madness every day of the rest of this planet!

    Here are some of the most exciting bottom up examinations of energy we have come across, please tell us others:

    Yunus http://gshakti.org /MIT-dlab/Germany's Nancy Wimmer

    Green Energy for a Billion Poor: How Grameen Shakti Created a Winning Model for Social Business by Nancy Wimmer (Feb 7, 2012)

    This can be compared with example presented by German micro-energy network Mobisol at the world bank live spring summit 2014 

    ..AJ Kalam, India's chief scientist and former president asked students to tear up non-sustainable curricula by 2020. Discuss some of these oppsoite way round values of renewable energy:
    clean prevents crisis of climate, poisoning food chains, need for ever more of planet to be used as dump sites of eg plastic..
    local security- prevents a nation's (or sub-nation) people being taken hostage by another's nation's ownership of carbon or nuclear energy
    in case of solar proves to be scalable one at a time (unlike massive grid infrastructures )
    Trust Crisis of Public servants and professions- since world war 2 abetted by huge spends on tv advertising, the value chain of public servants has turned against 99% of the people in several ways which the system appears unable to free itself from. eg where governments have raced to spend money on the combination of nuclear arms and energy. It is arguable that if the world's politicians had directed a tenth of money spent on nuclear reearch to photosynthesis we'd be enjoying a wholly different planet. Always remember that nature's evolutionary designs are primarily bottom-up and open- where man designs too big systems around top-down and closed (highly boundarised)  rules. #2030now asks those who come of age in their 21st century to integrate humanity's greatest ever collaboration goals with the defining advantages of post-industrial entrepreneurial revolution :
    *humanly being more connected than separated
    *digital code being replicable anywhere with cost of distance
    *ways knowhow can multiply value in use opposite to consuming up things

    Clean energy collaboration entrepreneurs can be linked with nearly 15 years of annual prizes awarded for microenenergy out of London by the Sainsbury Foundation, Prince Charles, BBC Nature Correspondenst, Royal Geographic Society and others of the network http://ashden.org

    This can be linked to the passion for open education on sustainable energy led by the Turner Family out of Atlanta and seconded by Jimmy Carter Family whose presidency was the first to advance solar photovoltaic cells through the pioneering work of Neville Williams - see eg http://www.self.org 

    Recommended visits if you have time in the southern states:
    Atlanta's late great carpet manufacturer Ray Anderson proved that if you were prepared to spend half a generation redesigning supply chains even carpet manufacturing could profitably aim for zero footprint- when ones suffers so much greenwashing CSR one is left to wonders what sectors couldn't emulate InterfaceSustainability if conscious leadership cared as much as youth of the net generation

    Yunus main corporate energy party ( The French company Schneider with its online energy university) has its main us research lab in Tennessee - the state of Al Gore and Inconvenient Truth. The founder of microcreditsummit is tee dyas to be found tutoring climate bottom-up lobbies at http://empoweringcitizens365.org

    Friends of Atalanta and Yunus are also linking in Japan's most urgent clean energy networks - TOMODACHI US-Japan Youth Exchange to rebuild the north of Japan, hit by massive earthquake and tsunami in 2011, led by the US Government and the US-Japan Council. I have been connected with Iren Hirano, President of the US-Japan Council who has a close relationship with the Consulate-General of Japan in Atlanta (please visit: http://www.atlanta.us.emb-japan.go.jp/janetikeda.html). experts supporting this Japanese Initiative include Gunter Pauli who has mapped 100 million blue green jobs

    health service

    while energy may be one of the top 2 opportunity and risk value chains, in many "developed countries" the costs of healthcare are arguably the greatest ponzi scheme elders have ever chained youth to- how do we liberate the great youth medic entrepreneurs is a question we urgently need to rehearse

    here's an extract from a conversation on this
    ANYONE know of Qualcomm Xprize?
    I ask because it seems to link youth to emedicine (a key love of yunus and of grameen intel) ;  the first in the yunus-edited series of youth's viral impossible postcards (attached) is on free nursing colleges

    qualcomm is largest employer in anna's san diego;  also this time last year 30 minute conversation I had with paul farmer at george soros university in budapest blew my mind!

    the competition teams look quite cool http://www.qualcommtricorderxprize.org/teams

    one of them was recognised by white house while being 15 year old marylander

    Jack Andraka is a Maryland high school student who at age 15 created a novel paper sensor that detects pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer in 5 minutes for as little as 3 cents. He conducted his research at Johns Hopkins University and is the winner of the Gordon E. Moore award at Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award and was Mrs. Obama’s guest at the 2013 State of the Union Address. He has spoken at TED Long Beach, over 11 TEDx events including House of Parliament, is the youngest speaker at the Royal Society of Medicine and has been featured on 60 Minutes, World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, NPR Marketplace, Popular Science, BBC, and Al Jazeera, as well as, in award winning documentaries including “You Don’t know Jack” by Morgan Spurlock. Jack is currently working with a team of teens (Gen Z) on the Qualcomm Foundation Tricorder X Prize and speaks about open access, STEM education and universal Internet availability. He is also on the national junior wildwater kayaking team, and has won awards at multiple national and international math competitions.

    Young Professionals Versus Old Professionals  has become a critical dynamic in analysis every value chain that isnt sustainang youth - so I wonder for which practice areas we can have searched out young professional editorial teams before atlanta- back in 2006 when mostofa and I though that was what yunus wanted youth forums to do - Eva Vertes was willing to help.  Any ideas anyone?
